Also check your tap water. That may be where the ammonia source is coming from. My tap shows ammonia when I test. I would seriously consider using RO water for saltwater tanks

+1 to test your water. I have a filter that's supposed to rock, but the chloramins(?) are so high in our local water that my ammonia was spiking.

They do add all kinds of stuff to tap water to disinfect it so its safe for drinking. But those chemicals are not safe sea life. RO water is filtered so all these things are removed and make it safe to your tank
